Roose Pioneers under-14s and Millom under-12s brought the curtain down on the Barrow & District Youth League season by winning their respective Top Four finals at Craven Park last Sunday.

In the case of the young Pioneers, their 16-4 triumph against Hindpool Tigers completed the 'treble' after previously winning the league title and the Knockout Cup.

Hindpool had an early try disallowed for a knock-on and this kicked Pioneers into action, as they worked their way up the field for Finn Dutton to score.

Play continued back and forth with Dodds for Hindpool making good yards with every carry, but Roose extended their lead as a result of an excellent kick and chase from Dutton, who went in under the posts after a helpful bounce.

Pioneers went into the second half 10-0 ahead, but Ryan Kyte was pulling the strings for the Tigers and some good play from Buchanan and Bradley Allan nearly resulted in a score.

With three minutes to go, Hindpool finally broke through with a try from Osman, but Pioneers managed to have the last word when Dutton completed his hat-trick with a superb individual try, which he also converted.

Earlier in the day, Millom prevented the previously undefeated Askam from completing a 'treble' of their own with a memorable 30-18 victory in the under-12s final.

From the start it was clear Millom were looking to upset Askam's party, jumping straight out of the blocks to score the first try through Jackson and the ambush continued after five minutes as Fallows broke through, with Barker's conversion taking it to 10-0.

Askam were forced to ramp up the pressure, which told when a determined drive from the forwards led to Lucas James scoring a try that Luke Bolton converted.

However, the young Woolybacks made the most of a sin bin to Askam's Ollie Caine when Fallows slid over the line to score his second and extend the lead to 14-6.

Caine returned five minutes into the second half and within seconds he had pulled a try back for Askam, which was converted by Bolton to reduce the gap to two points, before he completed the turnaround with a superb run that put his side 18-14 ahead.

Millom refused to lie down, however, and hit another level after Fallows completed his hat-trick to level the match with five minutes left.

He then added a fourth to put the pre-match underdogs ahead again before Park sealed their win on the stroke of full time.
